Prelinger Archive Mashups

What happens when you make close to 2,000 ephemeral public domain films freely available on the Web? People make art and more films are born!

Here’s a sample of films created with Prelinger Archives footage and uploaded to the Internet Archive. However, Rick Prelinger suspects thousands more are uploaded on other video sites. If you have a video you created using footage from the Prelinger Archives, please let us know so we can include it here.

Nudity alert. A collection of girly clips, set to a nicely bombastic piece of music. This movie is made entirely from the vintage burlesque shorts available here at the PRELINGER ARCHIVES. Every shot involves nudity or near-nudity. Do not download this movie if you are a repressed, blue-nosed freak. The files I uploaded are the VCD-ready MPEG1 and the Quicktime .mov. The MPEG1 has the best picture and sound. The Quicktime is smaller, with swooshy audio-compression artifacts and barely...

This is the first music video by the Berkeley CA. based band KUBICAL XPHERE. The video is made up of various public domain clips from Prelinger Archives and other sources. Many popular archive clips are cleverly woven into the nearly 7 minute song "Eve of Destruction" by KUBICAL XPHERE. Featuring Ed Nelson as "Ed" in the role that made him famous.

PANORAMA EPHEMERA (2004, 89:35 min., color and black and white) is a collage of sequences drawn from a wide variety of ephemeral (industrial, advertising, educational and amateur) films, touring the conflicted landscapes of twentieth-century America. The films' often-skewed visions construct an American history filled with horror and hope, unreeling in familiar and unexpected ways. PANORAMA EPHEMERA focuses on familiar and mythical activities and images in America (1626-1978). Many creatures...

A 're-imagining' of the 1950 Coronet film featured at Archive.org, this film was assembled to celebrate the marriage of Daniela Votavova and Aaron Simpson. It was originally screened in Ceske Krumlov, Czech Republic for wedding guests on the eve of the ceremony. Big thanks to the Prelinger Archives and Archive.org - we found nearly every type of shot we wanted on this site, in unbelievable quality and with relative ease.

In 1979, some friends and I were messing around with a video camera in a slum area of town that had largely burned down and never been rebuilt. The video camera was old, with a heavy, over the shouder separate deck, obsolete even then. We saw some stuff flying around the buildings. At first we thought they were kites or maybe some radio controlled toy planes. We never did figure out what they were, but we got some of the stuff on video.

"The future can be found in many places. It can be seen reflected in the eyes of those who are privileged to look at it." The narrative is from a (now) public domain film of the same name made in 1950, about the development of microwave radio transmission and the transistor. What is lovely about viewing this now is the timelessness of the message contained within; the will to find newer, faster ways to communicate. "In my view of the future the novelty will wear off.

Every afficianado of ephemeral public-domain films is familiar with the gratuitous and ubiquitous "purple vomit sequences" that inexplicably appeared in a great number of these films over a twenty-year period. As yet, not one producer, crewmember, or actor who was involved in any of these films has volunteered a reason for these bizarre segments, most of which have been excised from prints currently in distribution.

Music video by Cementimental. Original lo-fi animation was combined with clips from " Leave It to Roll-Oh ", a public domain movie from the Prelinger Archive. Much of the raw footage was subjected to experimental 'data bending' techniques; the movie files were edited as raw text data, resulting in controlled corruption effects for a distressed sci-fi aesthetic. Other effects were created by misusing morphing software. The music was made from loops composed using the Game Boy Camera's...

The idea for this film was based on the late Terrence McKenna's suggestion that the fascination some have for exterestial beings is a projection of a primarily religious impulse towards yearning for the existance of benevolent forces, or beings, beyond the earthly realm. From there I try to explore what in Chaos theory is called the self organizing principle, meaning that tendency of inanimate elements to combine and form, at least apparently, the semblence of life.

In this second installment the Rev. E.T. Chevalier practices his editing skills with clips from various Prelinger footage as well as protest footage from the Portland IMC Video Collective, via portland.indymedia.org. After spending the day watching the Japanese film Casshern he needed to vent with this excersize. Please give feedback as we'd like to make this a worthwhile attempt at meaningful video weblogging.

A presentation of sexism and the exploitation of women from the 1940s and the 1950s. Film clips from this time period are used to provide a real reference that today may seem comical. The contrast between our lives and these clips can show us how our understanding of equality has advanced. Comparisons between this film and our experiences can show us how these injustices have changed.

"The Frozen Menace" is a mockumentary short on the dangers of ice-cream consumption. Ostensibly an experiment in visual and audio manipulation, the film incorporates footage from over a dozen postwar dairy production and anti-drug films to create an absurd, alternate reality where ice cream is banned for it's hallucinogenic properties. All footage used in "The Frozen Menace" was obtained from the Prelinger Archives at The Internet Archive (www.archive.org). Special thanks to...

The song is from sin sin's musical comedy for the stage, Hospital For Skeletons which premiered at tf2 Theaterfestival van Nederland en Vlaanderen, Amsterdam, 2007. The Benelux-look visuals were assembled mainly from Prelinger Archive Material (with some other various copyright-free sources on the internet).

A syncopated juxtaposition of some of the odder footage found in the Prelinger Archives. No kiddin', this one will give you a for-real headache. Intended for the youngsters - you old people may find it "challenging". This is a sequel to earlier episodes in the PRELINGER! series, which can be found here: HOT PRELINGER ON A BUN PRELINGER ASSEMBLED! PRELINGER ARE CHIVES!

Available Light is a meditation on film and the play of light and machinery that generates the moving pictures we love. It combines video footage of film projectors at work with "movie-sounding" audio from the Prelinger Archive (specifically, from the public domain noir D.O.A.)

Sit down with a spare afternoon, a case of MILWAUKEE'S BEST ICE, a couple hundred archived CDs of Prelinger films, and this happens. You'll probably enjoy this more if you're stoned out of your mind. The movie's evocatively arranged imagery may induce low birth-weight in susceptible individuals. The MPEG1 file is VCD-ready and will look okay on your TV or computer monitor. The other formats are inferior exercises in video compression. Download them only if you must.

In the spirit of Mystery Science Theater, only not nearly as good. Hopefully comedic riffing on top of Coronet's 1950 guidance flick Control Your Emotions out of the Prelinger Archive. It's a first effort and the audio peaks badly at some points.
